General Electric CF6 Turbofan

Last weekend I went to the DC area, but since it was really hot, I decided to stay indoors and my first stop was the National Air and Space Museum. The GE CF6 Turbo fan is one of the may exhibits you’ll see on the first floor. I really wish I had a tripod, but since tripods are not allowed inside museums, I created this hdr photo using three images that I shot using the rebel’s auto bracketing feature. I have to boost my ISO and use a minimum of 400 or leave it set to Auto on all my shots because of the limited light available.

This hdr photo was created using a Canon Rebel XS and a EF-S 10-22mm Wide Angle Lens, aperture at F/5, ISO 640, Auto Bracketing set.

Software I use to create and process this photograph:

  • Photomatix Pro – I used this in creating this High Dynamic Range Photograph by merging the three exposures I shot.
  • Nik Dfine 2.0 – This is a photoshop plugin from Nik Software. I used this to remove noise from my photos.
  • Nik’s Viveza 2 – This from Nik Software. I used this to enhanced the fine detail structure of this hdr photo.
  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 – I used Lightroom to manage and organized my photographs.
